As a breeder who cares deeply about the welfare and health of each of my boxers, it is my priority and responsibility to do everything possible to assure their well being from birth.
While quality dog foods will provide everything needed to sustain life, virtually all of them are cooked during the manufacturing process. The heat from cooking causes much of the nutrients to be lost during the process.
By 8 weeks, your puppy’s immune system is at a vulnerable point and will soon be challenged on multiple stresses, adjusting to their new homes, exposure to bacteria and viruses, vaccines etc…
My dogs are started on supplements from birth and continue throughout their lives. It's our job as pet owners to not only give them the best start in life, but continue throughout all stages of their lives.

Your boxer could use a good quality Omega. Below are a couple choices...
TerraMax Pro Premium Omega 3
Iceland Pure Sardine Anchovy Oil- human pharmaceutical-grade, Omega 3 fatty acids that adds moisture to dry, irritated skin and promotes healthy skin & glistening coat
Iceland Pure Shark liver Oil-Dietary Supplement use to boost the immune system, helping to fight off infections, heal wounds, treat cancer and lesson side effects of conventional cancer treatment.
Virgin Coconut Oil - helps to support & maintain overall health in both humans & dogs. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, (medium chain fatty acid) that is also found in the mother's milk. Lauric acid is the substance that prevents infants from getting viral, bacterial and protozoan infections, and those same benefits also applies to dogs as well. The advantages of giving your dog coconut oil are far-reaching: reduces risk of cancers, improves digestion, promotes normal thyroid function, prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections, helps balance metabolism for a healthy weight, relieves arthritis, supports healthy skin and coat, disinfect cuts, clears up rashes, speed wound healing, reduces bad breath, makes coat sleek, glossy and deodorizes dog odor. Make sure it is Extra virgin Coconut Oil (cold press). I give my boxers....1/4 tsp for a boxer puppy, or one teaspoon for my adult boxer couple times a week. Make certain you work up to the suggested dosing amount gradually, as the detoxification process can trigger flu-like symptoms in dogs that start off on the full dose right away.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) - contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes important for keeping dogs healthy. It's a remedy with multiple uses for dogs: alleviating allergies, arthritis, establishing correct pH balance which helps avoid brown spots in grass when dogs urinate, also helps prevent tear staining under eyes. Add to their water bowl - for puppy start with a teaspoons and gradually increase to 1 tbs when adult. In summer 3-4 tablespoons added to food for an adult dog may help repel fleas & ticks. It can be used in a spray bottle(1/4 cup ACV in spray bottle with water) and spray on avoiding eyes and face. Apply a few drops in the ears to help clean the ears and to help avoid ear infections. Fleas, flies, ticks and bacteria, external parasites, ring worm, fungus, mange, etc., are more unlikely to inhabit a dog whose system is acidic inside and out. All fleas drown in soapy water and the ACV rinse makes the skin too acidic for a re-infestation.
Grapefruit Seed Extract, sometimes called GSE - is a holistic remedy used to stimulate the immune system, combat fungal, bacterial and viral infections, as well as their environments. It could wipe out some of the good PH in pro-biotic, but given separately kills virus and keep puppies strong and healthy.(Do not confuse grapefruit seed extract with grape seed extract, which is a very different product). GSE liquid 1 drop per 10 lbs in food separately from the meal that includes pro-biotic.
